Fox Searchlight has released nineteen new images from Wes Anderson‘s upcoming film, The Grand Budapest Hotel. The story takes place in early 20th-century Hungary, and revolves around the goings-on at the titular hotel where a legendary concierge (Ralph Fiennes) mentors a young employee (Tony Revolori). The film will sport a gigantic cast of characters, multiple aspect ratios, and as you can see from these images, a gorgeous color palette. Anderson’s films are always visually pleasing, but the colors here look like they’re ready to pop off the screen.
Hit the jump to check out the images. The film also stars Saoirse Ronan, F. Murray Abraham, Edward Norton, Mathieu Amalric, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Lea Seydoux, Jeff Goldblum, Jason Schwarztman, Jude Law, Tilda Swinton, Harvey Keitel, Tom Wilkinson, Bill Murray, and Owen Wilson. The Grand Budapest Hotel will premiere at the Berlin Film Festival in February and open in the U.S. on March 7th.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Grand Budapest Hotel:
THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL recounts the adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting and the battle for an enormous family fortune — all against the back-drop of a suddenly and dramatically changing Continent.
